Chicago Non-Immigrant Visa Lawyers

Non-immigrant visas are visas that are issued to individuals who wish to enter the United States on a temporary basis. To obtain a non-immigrant visa, a person must have a specific reason to be in the United States. These visas can be for study, work, tourism, or to be with family. Some of the more commonly issued non-immigrant visas are discussed below, with special attention paid to H-1B Visas for specialty workers.

Types of Non-Immigrant Visas

There are many other visas available for non-immigrants for a variety of purposes, including the following:

  • Business visitors
  • Visitors for pleasure or medical treatment
  • Academic or language students
  • Spouses of students
  • Foreign travelers in transit
  • Crew members of ships or airplanes
  • Certain intracompany transferees
  • Religious workers
  • Exchange visitors
  • Artists and entertainers

The Immigration and Nationality Act provides a number of different non-immigrant classifications for individuals to enter the United States for a specific temporary basis.  These differ from immigrant visas in that the immigrant generally wishes to remain in the United States for a certain period of time.  These visas do not necessarily lead to permanent resident status.

Congress designated these visas to cover certain types of individuals and employees that enter the United States.  These visas vary greatly based on the offered position, level of experience in the field, previous levels of achievement, and the foreign worker’s educational background. We provided a description of the most common types of non-immigrant visas.  Our firm handles not only those non-immigrant visas listed but also all non-immigrant visas for foreign workers and their employers.
